Jayco Herald Sun Tour
Stage 1: Mt Macedon to Bendigo - Stage Details

Multiple track world champion Cameron Meyer has moved into the race lead after claiming stage one of the Jayco Herald Sun Tour in Bendigo this afternoon.

Meyer emerged from a lead group of 21 riders, who had a strangle hold on the entire day’s racing, in the final ten kilometres with Joe Cooper (Avanti Racing) on his wheel.

Despite little cooperation from his fellow escapee, Meyer timed the run in to the finish to perfection and courtesy of stage victory bonus seconds now holds the leader’s yellow jersey by four seconds.

“There was lots of attacks in the end and I just had to bide my time for the right move,” Meyer said.
